This is our third stay with Roger and Brenda. Lovely room with all we needed, scrumy food and great fun. You cannot go to West Down and leave feeling unhappy. Made to feel like one of the family. Cannot wait to return.

If you are looking for a holiday that is full on, energetic and crazy, then the West Down Guest House is most definately not the place for you. However, if you want a place to really relax, to get to know other guests with great food and hospitality, then it most certainly is! This was our third visit to West... More

My partner and I have just returned from taking my elderly mother of 90 years to West Down for the second time. We all so enjoyed our first stay in 2012 my Mum was prepared to take the 260 mile journey to be looked after by Brenda with her wonderful meals and Roger with his breath taking flower baskets, tubs...

This was our third visit to West Down and as always we were made to feel special. Roger & Brenda are wonderful hosts. Roger provides the warmest bonhomie and Brenda's cooking is to die for! As my partner is a wheelchair user we have always had problems finding suitable holiday accommodation. However, the Swallow room was perfect for our needs... More

This is probably the best Guest House that we have ever stayed in. Brenda and Roger are wonderful hosts and their hospitality is unsurpassed with guests being treated as a extension of their own family - this is reflected in the number of repeat bookings with many visitors returning year after year and now regarded as family friends. Evening meals... More

We never thought we could find the ideal place, West Down is just that. We needed an accessible room and a special diet, With Brenda and a Roger this was no problem. This has to be one of our best holidays ever. Brenda and a Roger enfold you as one of their family, the room was perfect very comfortable, the... More

Look no further for your stay, thank you very very much Roger and Brenda for a very pleasant stay at West Down. Good company, excellent food and superb accommodation. Lots of lovely places to visit. Highly recommended for a stay in beautiful Devon.

Recommended by a friend and it lived up to her praises. Brenda and family worked hard to ensure our short break was a real break. This guest house really is a haven buried deep the wilds of North Devon. The rooms are quaint and cosy, with all the usual bits and two easy chairs so we could both rest and... More

Arrived not knowing what to expect and, having only spoken to Brenda on the telephone, she told me, "We are like a family here." Oooh I thought, but I needn't have worried, they are indeed like a family and we soon met the other guests who have been visiting Roger and Brenda for many, many years. Everyone was so friendly...

We enjoyed out stay at West Down's immensely. The very warm welcome we received from Brenda and Roger from the moment we arrived was outstanding and we felt part of their family from the onset. The cuisine was first class with fresh vegetables from their garden and superb and inspired menus for each day. West Down is a dream find... More
